The 2. liga or Druhá liga (second division) is the lower tier of the two professional football leagues in the Czech Republic. The top two teams are promoted to the Gambrinus liga.

Structure

There are 16 clubs in the Czech 2. Liga. During the season, which runs from August to May, with a winter break between November and February, each club plays each of the other clubs twice (once at home, once away) and is awarded three points for a win, one for a draw and zero for a loss. From these points a league table is constructed.

Teams are ranked by total points; in the case of two or more teams finishing with equal points, the head-to-head record between the teams is used for ranking, counting points in relevant games, then goal difference and then goals scored. At the end of each season the top two teams are promoted to the Gambrinus liga and are replaced by the two teams that finished bottom of that division.

Similarly the two teams that finished at the bottom of the Czech 2. Liga are relegated to either the Bohemian Football League or the Moravian-Silesian Football League, based on geographical criteria. In turn, the champions of each of these regional divisions are promoted to the Czech 2. Liga.
